This is the kinda thing which I have had in the past after building a new
world and not running mergemaster (I know, I know).  Obviously if this
isn't the case then that rules out that explanation of how the problem
arose but it still suggests your config and binaries are out of sync.  

Try running mergemaster and see if this fixes it or try grabbing a copy of
the ssh and pam config files from your localest CVS repo and comparing
them with what you have already.
